Within the framework of the « France Relance – R&D job preservation plan », Codex International and the Université Polytechnique Hauts de France have signed a partnership, under the auspices of the MESRI (French Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation) for the implementation of a materials R&D programme.
This ambitious programme focuses on the dual theme of lead-free functional inorganic materials: from material to thin film and on the development of piezoelectric materials in thin films.
The objectives of these projects are to obtain lead-free piezoelectric material layers by sputtering from dedicated targets. The films will be deposited on silicon substrates for electro-mechanical (MEMS)/optical/acoustic applications and on LiNbO3 and sapphire substrates with conductive or metallic ZnO layers for electronic/acoustic applications.
This 2-year research programme will require the hiring of a post-doc dedicated 100% to the project who will alternate periods of work at IEMN Valencienne and at Codex International and/or its partners.

[Nano-Medecine] – X-ray microscopy shows that nanoparticles can change cells 22 février 2020

Today, nanoparticles are not only in cosmetic products, but everywhere, in the air, in water, in the soil and in food. Because they are so tiny, they easily enter into the cells in our body. This is also of interest for medical applications: Nanoparticles coated with active ingredients could be specifically introduced into cells, for example to destroy cancer cells.
